Australia’s Skilled-Recognised Graduate Visa Capped

The Skilled-Recognised Graduate visa has been capped from December 22, 2023. ​Applicants with a pending application will be able to apply for a repayment of their Visa Application Charge (VAC).  As the authorities work through pending applications, applicants will be sent instructions on how to claim a repayment of their VAC through their ImmiAccount.

The Skilled-Recognised Graduate visa is usually issued for a stay of up to 18 months and allows travel, work and study.  Eligible applicants must be under 31 years of age; must have completed an engineering degree at a specified educational institution in the past 2 years; and must not have previously been the primary visa holder of a subclass 476 or 485 visa.
